2 Item 11, CW Report No. 38 Page 2 Contribution to Sustainability The New Community Area Block 27 Secondary Plan, including the Kirby GO Transit Hub Substudy, will support the objectives of, Places to Grow : the Provincial Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe, The Big Move Regional Transportation Plan, the York Region Official Plan, the Vaughan Official Plan 2010; and, Green Directions Vaughan Community Sustainability and Environmental Master Plan respecting the provision of sustainable development and the creation of complete communities. The more detailed transit hub sub-study will provide for a greater understanding of the environmental priority areas including limits of the Natural Areas, the mix of land uses and densities, the urban design character, in supportive of the creation of a seamless active and vehicular transportation network throughout the transit hub area. The intention of the study is to promote a vibrant and economically sustainable transit hub and Local Centre that both supports and builds on the higher order transit service. The sub-study will also inform further environmental assessment and transportation studies that will be undertaken by the Region of York and Metrolinx. Economic Impact There will be no economic impact resulting from the approval of this report. The implementation of the commitments required by Metrolinx will be pursued through studies that have been previously funded and are now underway. The financial strategy for the Station infrastructure and surrounding area will need to be developed in collaboration with the involved stakeholders once the Station site plan requirements are better known in the coming months. Communications Plan City staff will forward a copy of the resulting Council Minutes to the appropriate staff at Metrolinx, the Ontario Ministry of Transportation and the Region of York. A courtesy notice of this Committee of the Whole item was forwarded to the Block 27 Landowners Consultant on October 18, Purpose This report seeks Council s endorsement of Metrolinx s requirements respecting the location of the future Kirby GO Station in Block 27, and aspects of the land use plan for the Kirby GO transit hub, prior to the deadline of November 30, The report also provides a short status update on the Kirby GO Transit Hub Sub-study in the context of the Block 27 Secondary Plan process. Background - Analysis and Options 1. Metrolinx s Request for a Council Resolution Respecting the Kirby GO Station On June 28, 2016, the Metrolinx Board approved the selection of additional GO stations on the Barrie GO Rail line; including the Kirby GO Station in the northeast quadrant of Block 27, City of Vaughan. Also, there was a requirement for specific actions from those municipalities where the additional GO Regional Express Rail stations were identified. Subsequently, Metrolinx sent correspondence to the City Manager on August 4, 2016, requesting that the City provide confirmation of the following through a Council approved resolution: /3

3 Item 11, CW Report No. 38 Page 3 Agreement with the Station location; Commitment to implement transit supportive planning regimes around the station, if such does not already exist; and Sustainable station access solutions. Response to Metrolinx s Request: The commitments requested by Metrolinx are consistent with actions that have already been initiated by the City. The selection of the Kirby GO Rail station now provides City staff with greater certainty and the ability to work more closely with Metrolinx, the Region, York Region Transit and the Landowners Group to achieve a well-designed transit hub. The recently initiated Kirby GO Transit Hub Sub-study which is linked to the New Community Secondary Plan for Block 27 will provide the framework for fulfilling the commitments requested by Metrolinx. The Kirby GO Transit Hub Sub-study is an extension of the Block 27 Secondary Plan. The purpose of the Sub-study is to address the complexities inherent in the mix of land uses and infrastructure that will need to be accommodated in the Kirby GO transit hub. The study will serve to provide certainty for Metrolinx and stakeholders in future development and infrastructure approval processes. It is focused on delivering an integrated land use and infrastructure plan and supporting policies for the hub area, which will respect the objectives of the pertinent governing agencies and the landowners. Key objectives of the Kirby GO Transit Hub-Sub-study include accommodating: a. Transit supportive land uses and infrastructure in consideration of the Natural Heritage Network (NHN), the existing GO Rail line and the required station infrastructure. b. The requirement for excellent internal/external road network connectivity and hub area access. c. Coordination of the respective needs of all proponents involved (City, Metrolinx, York Region and the Block 27 Landowners). d. Achieve Secondary Plan policies which are realistic and implementable through the required range of planning processes. The sub-study has been underway since May of 2016 and the workplan for the sub-study has been consolidated with the workplans for the Secondary Plan and the NVNCTMP Studies. The Metrolinx Requests are consistent with the City s Objectives and Actions: The City s Consultants for the Kirby GO Transit Hub Sub-study have recommended that the new station be sited as requested by Metrolinx, south of Kirby and west of Keele Street, in the northeast quadrant of Block 27. This recommendation took into consideration the Consultants review of Metrolinx s technical guidelines related to the placement of new GO Stations (i.e. Distance separation from other stations, track alignment, access, etc.) and other planning considerations. Respecting the City s commitment to implementing transit supportive land use regimes around the station and sustainable station access solutions, the Kirby GO Transit Hub Study Workplan identifies the Metrolinx Big Move Regional Transportation Plan, Metrolinx Mobility Hub Guidelines and Metrolinx GO Transit Design Requirements Manual as important references for informing the development of the Kirby GO transit hub and detailed land use plan. In addition, the allocation of supportive densities and transit oriented urban design, consistent with the Provincial Growth Plan and the Regional and City Official Plans, will be the foundation for the ultimate land use planning solution. /4

4 Item 11, CW Report No. 38 Page 4 The City is committed to delivering a land use plan and policy framework for the Kirby GO transit hub that is consistent with the Metrolinx Mobility Hub Guidelines and GO Transit Design Requirements Manual; and that implements Transit Oriented Development consistent with the pertinent planning documents originating with the Province, City and Region. Therefore, it is recommended that the conditions set out in the letter of the President and Chief Executive Officer of Metrolinx to the City Manager dated August 4, 2016 be agreed to and that Metrolinx be advised accordingly. 2. Next Steps in Advancing the Kirby GO Rail Station Metrolinx s letter of August 4, 2016 also addresses the required next steps to progress the Kirby GO Station to procurement. It proposes the establishment of a working group and workplan to undertake the following tasks: (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) Define the station scope and site plan, including multi-modal access. Define the related incremental costs to the current GO RER program. Review the current land use policies in the Kirby Station area, and update as necessary any local policies, guidelines or by-laws to ensure transit supportive uses. Confirm the process, roles and responsibilities to advance Kirby Station to procurement including local community consultations, Transit Project Assessment Processes (TPAPs), the preparation of bid documents, and potential partnerships with developers. Staff is committed to working with Metrolinx to coordinate our respective planning processes such that the requirements of each organization are addressed effectively and efficiently. City staff met with Metrolinx and York Region staff on August 26, 2016 to begin discussion on advancing the Kirby GO Station land use plan/site plan and to better understand the desired working group composition and terms of reference. The organization of a formal working group to ensure coordinated input and review of key deliverables pertaining to the Kirby GO Transit Hub land use plan and policies will be essential to the success of the project. Our proposed working group would include Metrolinx, the City, the Block 27 LOG, York Region and Transit operators including YRT/VIVA and GO Transit. City Staff will be working with Metrolinx, the Region, and any other agencies to confirm the mandate, governance structure, membership and workplan for the working group. 3. Status Update on the Block 27 Secondary Plan and Kirby GO Transit Hub Sub-study Work continues on the Block 27 Secondary Plan and the associated transit hub study. Recent actions are summarized below. Completed Tasks The Block 27 Secondary Plan Study and Kirby GO Transit Hub Sub-study have now progressed to the task of developing the Hub Area Concept Plan of the Block 27 Work Program.

Relationship to Term of Council Service Excellence Strategy Map ( ) This report is consistent with the Term of Council Service Excellence Strategy objectives to: Develop transit, cycling and pedestrian options to get around the City; Create and manage affordable housing options; and, Continue to cultivate an environmentally sustainable City. Regional Implications York Region staff are members of the Block 27 Secondary Plan Study and NVNCTMP Technical Advisory Committees, and are actively participating in these studies. Regional staff will continue to be active stakeholders in the consultation programs for the Block 27 Secondary Plan and NVNCTMP Studies. These studies will help inform future Environmental Assessments for which the Region will be the proponent; and studies by Metrolinx and the City that may affect Regional infrastructure. Conclusion The New Community Area Block 27 Secondary Plan Study, including the Kirby GO Transit Hub Sub-study, is well underway. The workplan for the sub-study acknowledges that the principles and requirements for GO Station planning, as set out in Metrolinx s Mobility Hub Guidelines and GO Station Design Requirements Manual, are critical to the ultimate urban design and land use plan for the Kirby GO transit hub. Staff concur with Metrolinx s requested confirmation respecting /7
